The activist group, AfriForum, is planning to open criminal cases against all of South Africa's Health Departments.

The cases will be based on the allegations that the Health Departments wasted more than R10 billion between 2016 and 2017.

AfriForum believes that the Health Departments must be held accountable for the huge amount of money that was wasted, according to a report by EWN.

They say it was irregular and wasteful expenditure - something that is all too common in South Africa's government.
